Customize URL names using PHP agent API

With APM Insight PHP agent, you can customize URL names for your web transactions. 

Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open the PHP script of the transaction for which you want to customize the URL.
  2. Add the following snippet in any part of the PHP script



zpa_transaction_name("<any url name>") 



  •  The string must be alpha numeric. Only '_' and '/' are allowed as special characters. Any other special character will be replaced by '_'. 
  • If the API is called after uninstalling the PHP agent, your application would throw error. So remove the API when uninstalling PHP agent.
